Dare to Dream Children’s Foundation

CTE Gives Back! May 2021
THE GREEN BERET FOUNDATION
With the month of May, we welcome the blossoming of spring flowers, celebrate motherhood on Mother’s Day, and wind up the month with Memorial Day. This Memorial Day holiday, observed to honor the men and women who died while serving in the US military, originated following the Civil War and became an official Federal holiday in 1971.
It seems fitting this month of May 2021 to salute through the CTE Gives Back Program, the Green Beret Foundation, an organization that supports one group of our military and America’s Premier Special Operations Force – Green Berets. Highly trained in counter terrorism, fluent in foreign languages, cultures and strategic operation tactics, on any given day the Green Berets are deployed in over 100 countries throughout the world. Compared to the rest of the military, on a per capita basis Green Berets sustain the highest casualty rate due to the nature of their mission and frequent deployments.

CABLE TIE EXPRESS GIVES BACK!
THE NOAH BENJAMIN REISMAN FOUNDATION, INC.
We at Cable Tie Express have chosen to introduce this month’s selection of the charity to which we will donate a portion of our profits with a different type of lead in and perspective. Put simply and with intention - Enjoy every moment in the present. Each of us can reflect and perhaps live a bit in the past. Happy memories are comforting and a happy place. Each of us can plan and prepare for the future. Visions ahead are inspiring and energizing. But never ever miss the gift of the present.
Living in the present, giving each and every bit of energy, enthusiasm and determination to all with an eye to the future had to have been at the core of Noah Benjamin Reisman. It is his legacy that is being preserved and honored through The Noah Benjamin Reisman Foundation, Inc. The life of Noah, an incredible and accomplished young man, was snuffed out way too soon in a tragic accident this past September 2020.

BRIDGE CLINIC – ABBOTT NORTHWESTERN HOSPITAL FOUNDATION
While 2020 may be in the rear view mirror, the impact associated with the stress due to Covid-19 and the coronavirus remains, including the increased consumption of alcohol. Studies have shown that during 2020 this heightened alcoholic consumption for many individuals has led to great challenges for individuals and families.
As we kick off the new year, some focus is on how to counter this growth in alcoholic consumption in a positive way. The Center for Disease Control’s has listed limiting the use of alcohol as one of “totally doable New Years resolutions”. The news media has promoted Dry January – a month when people voluntarily stop drinking alcohol, starting the year on a sober, more refreshed and healthy note - as a challenge that has been taken up by many around the world.
We at Cable Tie Express through its CTE Gives Back! Program are eager to lend support in this arena. We are happy to have chosen Abbott Northwestern Hospital Foundation in Minneapolis, MN with the CTE funds being directed specifically to the Bridge Clinic as the recipient of the January 2021 donation.

CTE Gives Back! September 2020
While water is something that nearly all of us in the United States take for granted on a daily basis, it’s astonishing to think that globally 785 million people – 1 in 9 - live without safe access to water and 2 billion people – 1 in 3 - live without improved sanitation! And now as all are facing the impacts of Covid 19, it is even more critical to the health of families worldwide to have access to safe water.
Water.org, an international nonprofit organization with a 25 year history, has positively transformed literally millions of lives around the world with safe water and sanitation through affordable financing. The organization has worked with corporations and partners to create access for financing, such as small loans, for those who need it most.
